New York has more bars than any other city in the world. There are great bars and a fair amount of terrible bars. The team at Where We Watch know the "where should we go out?" feeling and want to take the guess work out of your drinking plans.

Bar Coastal

1495 1st Ave

Bar Coastal is like a great worn-in t-shirt in the generic abyss that is the UES. Both an indoor and an outdoor bar, both authentic sports bar and chill dive bar, the beer and wings specials are a

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ - Upper East Side

We'll sum this one up with an anecdote from a co-worker -- "My girlfriend just moved to town. Huge Ohio State fan. First weekend she's here, they're kicking off at noon. We get up there at 11:30

The Crowe’s Nest (Closed)

The Crowe’s Nest (Closed)

Coolest thing about this place, maybe: it's a Seattle Seahawks bar in Manhattan. (You don't find a lot of those.) In a northern Second Avenue area populated with dives, some more beer-pong driven
